  • About the artist
    Susan Hiller was born in America and trained as an anthropologist at Tulane University, New Orleans. After undertaking fieldwork in Central America and completing her PhD in 1965, she experienced what she has called ‘a crisis of conscience’ and abandoned a career in anthropology. From the mid 1960s she based herself mainly in London and she began her career as an artist in the early 1970s, with her first solo exhibition at Gallery House in 1973. Across four decades, she worked in a variety of film, video, installation and sound media, and her work has been exhibited widely, including a major solo exhibition of her work at Tate Britain in 2011. Her work is included in numerous international collections including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Ludwig Museum, Cologne; Museum of Modern Art, New York, the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, and the Tate Collection. She died in London in 2019.
